relations between the u.s. and iran. >> the oscar-nominated movie "argo" has put a spotlight back on that crisis and on the secretive nation, as well. abc's david muir was invited to take a look inside iran. >> we have just landed. >> reporter: we landed in iran in a country where american journalists are rarely allowed to visit. and rarer still, we were given access to the people, the streets of tehran. above ground, a bustling city of 12 million.
